    Non-Profit Spotlight: Toms River Field of Dreams

    In this episode, my guest is Christian Kane, the founder of Toms River Field of Dreams. We are talking about how groups like Integrity Holdings Group can support not only investors but also non-profits. Christian discusses the inspiration behind the project.

    Toms River Field of Dreams is a non-profit run by Christian Kane and his wife Mary. Their son Gavin suffered a car crash that left him with special needs. 

    Being fighters, they dedicated their time and efforts to give Gavin a great life. When they realized that the resources they had available in their community weren’t cutting it, they decided to do something about it. 

    This is how Toms River Field of Dreams started. The project expanded, and today, they are a bedrock in their community, providing people with special needs and their caretakers a chance to interact, participate, and experience all that the life has to offer. 

    We’re going to discuss the background and inspiration behind this project, as well as the financial side of things.

Love hearing about other ways than throwing money in stocks

All I’ve ever known is putting money into stocks and crossing my fingers. Can’t wait to pivot my funds into this vehicle for wealth.

YonahWeiss ,

Get out if stocks and into Real Estate already.

Do not think that your financial advisor has your best interest in mind. Unfortunately, more often than not, they might actually have their commisions in mind first and foremost.
This podcast is mind opening to anyone who has ever thought that wall street is the only safe investment vehicle. MUST LISTEN!
